Glossary Crossword

Leave a comment

– A great reading, spelling & vocabulary lesson! I keep a graph book in my relief folder for activities like this…


Students choose a non-fiction book that has a glossary at the back – preferably on a topic that they are studying in class!
Show them how to make a crossword ; drawing the boxes, linking the words, numbering the boxes & then listing the clues at the bottom.
Students use the words & definitions found in the glossary to create their crossword.
When finished they can swap with another student to complete.
